I’m stealing Red Hen’s idea here and starting an Advent fitness streak, though also a fully-clothed one, and definitely not all running. Yesterday I did five circuits up and down the stairs – a gentle start, but I did run up each time. Today I ran (very slowly) a mile, in the dark. So I feel very virtuous.
Target is to be a bit fitter for Christmas, and to run a nice slow 5k on the 15th December, which will be exactly a year since I joined the Couch to 5k NHS running forum, and did my first one minute runs. I may not be running very much, but I am definitely fitter than I was a year ago, when running for a minute nearly finished me off. Though looking at my heart-rate and the super-slow pace, I can see that I have plenty of scope for improvement to get back to where I was earlier in the year – but I’m not in a rush.
